‘the Eagle Behind A Billion Stars’ - Poem by Ken e Hall
Natures soaring wind
Lifts your mighty beautiful wings
Catching the updraft,
You are the king of the skies
That will sustain your life to
View the view this menu brings,
With God’s gift of having
The most powerful scanning eyes
Silently backed by a billion sleeping stars.
Single sweeps of a lonely eagle
In effortless circles glide,
For other birds their efficiency
Raises the bars
Suddenly the eyes lock on,
The wings fold into its side
A living dive bomber
Falls fast to the lake below
Sweeping to a glide talons locked seeking its prize.
In a wonderful motion the talons
Dip and grip a salmon from the flow
This in an iron grip
Wriggles in its death dance
For Mother Nature provides
Food alive and fresh on the range
Yes for the mighty eagle that’s not by chance
A zillion years of evolution evolved
To make this creature change.
